Zaisan Memorial, Ulaanbaatar

3.9
Pay tribute to the largest movement of motorized troops in the history of warfare at Zaisan Memorial, a monumental concrete sculpture perched on the top of a hill. A Soviet T34 tank mounted on a concrete pedestal commemorates the efforts of the World War II Mongolia People's Tank Brigade, which covered the distance from Moscow to Berlin. At the 360-degree observation deck, a concrete memorial in the shape of a colossal proletarian flag towers over a large curved mural depicting friendship between the peoples of the USSR and Mongolia.

  • Drove up to the hill but parking is limited. There are a few hundred steps to take up to the Zaisan memorial. This is a good spot to have a view of Ulaanbaatar.  more »
  • This is the site that celebrates the Russian soldiers who helped Mongolia against the Chinese. The site provides the absolute best view of UB.

  • Be fit to walk up from the bottom! Even halfway is a good work out but once you get to the top, amazing views across Ulaanbaatar.  more »

  • Promising new entertainment center. Great views from restaurant(s)
  • Great place to visit in Ulaanbaatar! About an hours walk, or short taxi/ bus ride (number 55 or 52), from the heart of the city. Great views of the city and surrounding Bogd Khan mountains. Place comes alive at night with many people coming up to watch the sun set
  • From zaisan monument you can enjoy amazing view of Ulaanbaatar city. Recently Zaisan Hill Complex openned, which you can enjoy your time.
  • Worth the hike up the stairs for a view over Ulaanbaatar city. Stay for sunset on a clear day for the loveliest views.
  • Very cool art! Lots of wind! I counted 600 steps exactly!
